from the talks. looks like we are going over the cliff. >> that begs the question if there is reid mcconnell deal in the senate. some discussion it would probably include an extension of tax rates for most americans. extension of unemployment benefits. possibly a measure to prevent the scheduled cut in medicare payments to doctors. how will the house respond to any senate deal? >> i think if mcconnell is onboard he will bring a lot of republican votes. the democrats are by and large if the president supports it they will back their president. there could be enough votes in the house, speaker john boehner talked about amending that bill. i think if it gets a 70 to 30 senate vote i think i it get te votes in it the house to pass but it might not happen until after january 3, january 4. >> i want to ask you about what ed henry was just reporting. president obama says either a deal is reached or you vote on the short-term stop gap measure. if republicans fail to pass it i'm summarizing it's their fault. so the president kind of tossing the ball into the republican's camp, placing blame
carolina, and the surrounding towns, basically begging for a kidney. did you think you would get anybody? >> no. i guess not. >> reporter: then why do it? >> i'm trying. i had to do something. >> reporter: it was really just a way to not feel helpless, which is why he was as surprised as anyone when the phone rang. >> i'm willing to donate a kidney for your wife. >> reporter: rang repeatedly. >> would love to find out how to be tested. >> reporter: hundreds of people who either saw his sign or heard about it volunteered. >> i've got two of them, and i only need one. >> reporter: so far, there's been no match, but at this point, he's almost certainly recruit enough volunteers and raised enough awareness-- >> i'll take your kidney. >> reporter: ...to save someone, which is fine by his wife. >> if i get a kidney, fine. if i don't, i hope someone else does. >> reporter: that's not good enough for him. >> i know it. >> reporter: that's why larry is still looking, still appealing to the kindness of strangers for the love of his life. steve hartman, on the road, in anderson, south carolina. >>
done today and over the weekend, nothing for the house to vote on, which begs the question, if we go over the cliff, which it appears likely, what next? >>guest: the i.r.s. has postponed the withholding tables so we have a few more days. but the senate has not pass add budget in 1,341 days. i did not expect them to work quickly today but hopefully they can put something out that includes spending cuts because that is the problem. we have the fiscal cliff and the debt ceiling and again, that remains a problem and any deal that ignores spending is no real solution and just punts and makes it more difficult down the road. >> how do you get leverage negotiating around the debt ceiling, it is the second time in two year we have blown past the ceiling but no one cares? there is no leverage? >>guest: the bad debt deal creates the situation today 17 months ago and we will face that again in a couple of months but i hope, the last thing remembers want to do is have any say on the potential deal. we will hear the details in the next couple of hours and get final details out to us but it looks
. ben's father beg president putin to think twice before signing the bill into law. >> just from father to father, president putin, i just ask that, as a father, just to consider what's happening to the families that are in process. let us at least go through the process of bringing home our children. >> reporter: right now it's estimated that 1500 kids are in the process of being adopted. if this law goes into effect january 1, those adoptions could come to a screeching halt. in the newsroom, melissa mollett, news4. >>> john mccain condemned the new legislation, calling it shameful and appalling. in a statement he said the effects are cruel and malicious. thousands of babies and children who had a chance for a loving home and better future will now be denied that opportunity. to punish babies and children over a political difference between our governments is a new low, even for president putin's russia. >>> more people wanting a chance to attend the inaugural ball next month, the limited number of tickets, the official ball will take place january 21st at the washington convention cen

of the land. lan but also begs the question of, do you want to spend your time trying to do the things it did not release him to pay off much in the last election? >> jason dick, emily goodin, thank you for being on "newsmakers." [captioning performed by national captioning institute] [captions copyright national cable satellite corp. 2012] >> we will show our conversation with luke messer today again at 6:00 p.m. eastern. coast chambers of congress are in -- both chambers of congress are in. the senate is in at 1:00 eastern time. votes are scheduled at 2:00 p.m. eastern. majority leader harry reid and minority leader mcconnell had set a deadline of 3:00 p.m. when they're planning to convene a caucus meetings and update members of the parties on a possible plan for taxes and spending on the new year. will bring you live coverage of the senate on c-span2 started at 1:00 eastern. in the house, the return of 2:00 p.m. you'll be considering a number of pieces of legislation. what the live coverage of the house here and c-span. next, retiring senator kent conrad reflects on his career in congress
, that the business community was begging for, it was certainty from washington. we don't care whether good policy, bad policy, give us a policy we know we will live under for the next few years so we can start to make decisions. i don't see how a businessman would have any idea what is going to happen as a result of what is happening here or go what is going to happen to the debt ceiling. >> i think president obama outmaneuvered congressional republicans which maybe isn't that hard sometimes. he can't outmaneuver reality. this deal does nothing toimulad irresponsibly cuts defense. that is reality. we will pay a terrible price as a country. he is the only president we have. this is a terrible failure of leadership. he is the president and the truth is the speaker can't do it. the minority or majority leader of the senate can't do it. he has to be serious about dealing with reality and reality is the real cliff which is a debt cliff and monetary cliff and up' worried a foreign policy cliff and not merely the little fiscal cliff we have to deal with january 1. >> chris: panel, we have to take a brea
. what happened? four years is a long time. for james and the folks begging for her, if she runs, she will not be running alone. she will fight in a primary. >> are republicans quaking in their boots at the thought of martin o'malley or andy cuomo? >> i actually think hillary clinton deserves a year to take a deep breath and not have to worry about it. she needs to rest. give her 2013. it's not hillary versus hillary. but i think she ends up running. >> who the heck knows what could happen and how things are going to shake up. >> fascinating point. fascinating conversation for 2013. we'll be right back. duralock power preserve. it locks in power for up to 10 years in storage. guaranteed. duracell with duralock. trusted everywhere. your doctor will say get smart about your weight. i tried weight loss plans... but their shakes aren't always made for people with diabetes. that's why there's glucerna hunger smart shakes. they have carb steady, with carbs that digest slowly to help minimize blood sugar spikes. and they have six grams of sugars. with fifteen grams of protein to help manage
, and begged them to please follow him. and then to go before them when they didn't, he actually read the serenity prayer aloud. he read it to his own members. he said to all of his members, "lord, grant me the serenity to accept the things i cannot change. that is not the prayer you say when you know what you're going to do next. it is not the prayer you say when you even have a plan. it is a prayer that you say when all of your other plans have, well, gone to hell. john boehner walked out of that conference with his members, and he released a statement that essentially said, i tried but i'm out. he wrote, "the senate must now act." senator schatz, that is where you and your chamber come in. now, at times in the last couple years this has actually worked. when the house can't come to an agreement with the president, the democratic leader in the senate, harry reid, and the republican leader mitch mcconnell have come together and they have saved the day. they did it again and again. it happened in 2010, when mitch mcconnell actually worked with joe biden to extend the bush tax cuts and
that gets us at some distance down the road. can congress do beg or even medium things anymore, and is that a new trend or not? >> well, it's a culmination of a trend, obviously, that's been taking place for a generation. the answer seems to be no that given the current climate in washington, dwichb the idealogical complexion within both parties, there's really not the incentive for a grand bargain. in the absence of that, what you have is apparently deadline improvization to just get past this crisis, but do no more than get past the crisis. >> although people say they want this grand bargain, but you say what about we do this and this and this. maybe people want small. i want to talk about most people come out of this -- most people who are involved probably come out of this not looking that great. one person getting good press today at least is joe biden. what is the sort of biden role here? this is a guy who spept ayalon time in the senate. he is seen as now he is brokering it and is the dance partner mitch mcconnell wanted. what does that mean for biden as we move forward?
tough to get passed. we had to ram is through at the end begging senator bob kerr weeverything we had and it got condition. what happened is the markets respond, rest of the world looked at us and said they can manage their affairs. what bothers me about what we're about to do is we can't manage our affairs and the public is understandably frustrated and angry and dispirited by it. >> o'donnell: yet vote everybody back in office for the most part. voted back in the same president and the same republican. >> in an exis ambivalent way i want to talk about stability for my former boss, ronald reagan. he would have tim o'neill, his partisan, fierce opponent of the speaker of the house come in and try to work on the same sort of deals being discussed now, but ronald reagan also had the republican leaders of that same house and that same senate in. he had to mash them all together. he had to make it work. one of the surprising things about president obama in this crisis, i think, is that he walked in as a winner. he just won an election. he had everything going for him, much higher populari
-wage employment, being forced to beg for meals, being less likely to have access to transportation and the justice system in whatever country they happen to be in. in america we fought to pass the americans with disabilities act and we lead the world in services in accessibility for disabled people. we passed it because democracy is only as vibrant as it is open to the participation of all citizens. that's why i was proud to cosponsor critical amendments to the a. dea., the americans with ta disabilities act to make the definition of "disability" more inclusive. we taught for the a.d.a. amendments act of 2008 because access to a good-paying job, to public transportation, to public accommodation should be universal. now, some detractors say, well, americans are taken care of here at home. why should we worry about discrimination that disabled people in other countries might suffer? dr. king wrote in a letter from a birmingham jail that injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. he explained that we're caught in an inhescapable network of mutuality tied in a single garment of destiny. wha
up beg-time. we'll also keep a close eye on the situation. by the way, matt mccall will join us coming and you he will break down all the difficult taxes and how it affects your wallet. so stay tuned for that. heather: well a scathing new report blaming the state department for failing to respond to security threats at the u.s. consulate in libya. now the report by the senate homeland security committee says that the consulate became increasingly unstable in the months leading up to the terror attack. retired four-star general jack keane is a former vice chief of staff of the army and a fox news military analyst. thank you so much for joining us. >> glad to be here, heather. heather: i want to begin with something undersecretary for management patrick kennedy noted for a briefing on the committee. benghazi was flashing red around the time of the attack. that is what this report is called, flashing red. despite the increasing threat in the region and the apparent vulnerability of the compound no one seemingly recommended closing the facility or even shutting it down temporarily a
has increased which then begs for more investment at different speeds. how is that factored into your analysis about whether there's an efficiency and investing and whether it's the california corridor or another? >> we are still assessing the california's process, the rail authority process for for developing its ridership and revenue forecasts. but our sense is that largely filed their best practices after the impact inspector general has put a really nice guys out there, but, you know, it's inherently risky. your forecasting the future. it's an extreme accomplished undertaking. but that being said it's critical to determine the viability of our project. and i think the key to this is that you have to continually refined the as and as the project scope is being change. you just update the model, make sure that you have the state-of-the-art, if you will, and you just, as the economy changes, so you just constantly updating and refining and seeing if you need to tweak where things need to go. so that's the process that i think california is undertaking as well. >> let me just turn, be
's debt been begging you heard the speaker say the word "balanced." that is a key word. let's make that even. i think once both sides get to a number that is pretty close to even, i think we're going to get a deal. host: what is happening today on the house floor? guest: for weeks now, some republicans have been saying what we need to do -- the president has been winning the p.r. campaign on this. what we need to do is pass our own bill to put pressure on the democrats. they will come in today and they will take up a measure that will extend the bush era tax cuts for a certain segment of income earners, those who make below $1 million. it stops the overall tax cuts for everybody which is something the president has been asking for. it raises rates on so-called millionaire's. that gives the president what he has been asking for, basically which is to raise taxes on people who he considers wealthy. the president has a different number in mind. the ones to raise rates on people earning more than 200 -- the ones to raise rates on people earning more than 250,000 -- he wants to raise ra
a good point. >> it begs the question i want to you answer, what are they all doing here? if nobody is interested in getting this deal? >> as dana pointed out, lots of house republicans would rather vote on something after the 1st than before. i haven't seen any indication from obama or the people around him that they are okay with going over the cliff. they really do seem to want to do something before the deadline. they seem desperate to do that. plenty of liberals say, go over the cliff. big cuts in the pentagon and big tax hikes. the white house, from all indications that i've seen, they don't want that to happen. they are scared of what could happen to the markets. >> why aren't they dalg dealing with boehner? dana, be go ahead. jumpb in here. >> i think they won their negotiating power once boehner last week failed. as dana pushed out, the only thing that can get boehner is to do something. >> reporter: i think that you're right when i said that democrats don't think that the president will have much political damage. that does seem to be coming more from democrats here in con
economy, aren't adversely impacted because people can't do their jobs. >> so that begs the question, hall. how are other countries preparing for this really precarious situation and one in which they really have no control. >> well, martin, there's not much they can do to prepare. what will happen, if the fiscal cliff turns out to take place, is that we'll start to see the economy beginning to slide. the first thing that has happened already is that a lot of small businesses and other companies have been holding back on spending, and on hiring people. because they're worried about the tax rate increase. but starting in january 1st, we're going to start seeing things like payroll taxes going up, we're going to see other taxes starting to come into place that will be very difficult for some people. but that's only the beginning. in february, we're going to have to deal with the debt crisis. and the debt ceiling. and that's going to be an issue that will make the economy even more unstable. and by may and april, we're going to start to see things like estimated taxes increase and the governm
that sooner or later. they didn't want to scream it in the faces of legislators and say we are begging for it, really kind of chastising you to bring this on. now, that moment is here. amazon has changed their position. 40% of their sales are from smaller etailers and they handle that on their behalf. they have distribution everywhere. they were are based in washington state for a reason. 98% of the country then is not subject to tax. once you have distribution centers everywhere, now all bets are off. they say we will take this on and they may even make money on it because the 40% of etailers will pay them to handle the taxes for them. >> shannon: what i discovered if you make the transactions as a consumer and you are not charged sales tax you are supposed to be reporting it on the tax return and everyone i mentiond that to heard it for the first time so this would iron that out as well. >> it is confusing for consumers. it is not based on where you are are shopping from. it is where you are shipping to. this could go through for a lot of different reasons. to help states with taxes and two
context because now we know the u.s. household net worth has reached a 43-year low. so, it begs the question for washington, this the time now you want to raise taxes on those particular americans? >> this comes from a study from an nyu economics professor and his name is alan wolf and he has said that the net worth, now, this isn't your income, your net worth is now $57,000, the median net worth. in other words, it's the lowest as clayton said in decades because debt has balooned so much in the middle class and your net worth is much lower than it used to be 30 years ago. >> and much because home values have declined. so, the money you owen your home is more than it's worth. so, that's probably-- >> that's the problem. >> alisyn: it's edward wolf and i said-- interestingly, another little tidbit in this study that he did, which is that for the top 1%, the net worth has skyrocketed, it's gone up 71% for the top 1% you've heard so much about, so the discrepancy between the middle class and the upper echelon is bigger than it's been and that may be what president obama is clinging
there in the well begging his colleagues to pass this disabilities convention, maybe his last lobbying effort that he would undertake. it meant so much to the dole family and to robert dole. he came to the floor and we called the measure, and those who witnessed it will remember that most members came and sat in their chairs to cast a vote, which is rare here, and it really tells the story that this was more than just an ordinary, routine vote. we listened as the roll call was made, and we watched the senators stand and vote, and then toward the end i turned to tom harkin who was sitting right over here and i said, we don't have it, we missed it. we did. we failed to ratify this by five votes. 61 votes. we needed 66 votes because senator kirk is antibiotic because of illness -- is absent because of illness. 66 votes we needed to pass this. there were only eight republicans that would stand with all of the democrats to pass this convention on disabilities. senator john mccain led that effort, john mccain, a person who knows the cost of war and the price that's paid and who showed real, extraor
. that would be the impact on it. because most of the money, the new money that that he would beg is to fund new spending. so i'm worried about this. i don't think that the leader of our nation, the one person elected by all the people, should be laying out a program to the american people that does not honestly deal with the debt threat that we have that, does not honestly lay out to the american people how we're on an unsustainable course, as every expert has said. it does not honestly talk with the american people about why medicare is in trouble, why social security is in trouble and what we need to do to fix it. our president won't even talk about that. and when somebody talks about it in a serious way to fix those programs, they get attacked by the white house. and this new budget doesn't do anything about it either. i think this is not good leadership, and i hope and i know senator mcconnell and speaker boehner have pleaded with the president to talk about these long-term systemic problems. social security, medicare, medicaid and interest on the debt is almost 60% of what we spend in

support systems, and it is not a new problem. it is frankly getting worse going forward. that begs the question of, yes, we need to reform the education system, particularly focusing on middle school, but we also have to recognize, as steve mentioned, one of the opportunities and challenges of the internet is that has made space and distance and time in effect disappear in terms of the change. you can build it anywhere. if you can build it anywhere, that means america has international companies with footprints everywhere, and microsoft and google and aol can choose where to locate. if they're not getting enough american talent, it will relocate. one last point, many of these younger people are still being trained at our universities. oftentimes, they're not so much going back home, many are just driving north to toronto, canada, where there is a much easier visa system. >> steve, people say the problem is not just that it cannot the talent in the u.s. but that it costs more. that this is about a less- expensive alternative. >> no, i don't think that is true. i think it is also the
